More white chocolate on Chocablog! What is the world coming to??
Kinder Bueno White is, as you may have guessed, the white chocolate version of the rather tasty Kinder Bueno, which we reviewed back in 2006.
There are two main differences between the original Bueno and this one:
- It has white chocolate instead of milk.
- It’s much, much messier…
As you can see, it can’t even sit still long enough to be photographed without shedding it’s skin (sorry, “cocoa decoration”) everywhere. I’m quite sure that Kinder designed this bar with good intentions, but it really is impossible to eat without getting bits of cocoa everywhere.
But those tiny granules of cocoa-flaoured stuff do give a slightly more chocolatey flavour than most white chocolate bars, as well as adding a little bit of texture (both to the chocolate, and to my desk and clothes).
Messiness aside, this bar retains all the good features of the original Bueno. The crispy wafer and smooth hazelnut filling make it deliciously creamy and light. It’s delicious. But I don’t think I’ll be buying another, simply because I don’t believe in chocolate that takes longer to clean up after than it does to eat. If you can cope with the mess, you can buy it online from Amazon (links below) and other reputable dealers of messy chocolate.
